      ScienceDaily (July 1, 2009) — The American Dietetic Association has
      released an updated position paper on vegetarian diets that concludes
      such diets, if well-planned, are healthful and nutritious for adults,
      infants, children and adolescents and can help prevent and treat
      chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, obesity and
      diabetes.

      ADA's position, published in the July issue of the Journal of the
      American Dietetic Association, represents the Association's official
      stance on vegetarian diets:

      "It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that
      appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or
      vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate and may provide
      health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.
      Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during
      all stages of the life-cycle including pregnancy, lactation, infancy,
      childhood and adolescence and for athletes."
